Saffron Cafe, Downtown's first-ever Moroccan restaurant, opened Monday, March 2 at 621 Fort Wayne Ave. (in the former Canary Cafe location.) Owner Anas Sentissi brings years of restaurant experience and his family's secret tiramisu recipe. The menu features delicious Moroccan specialties including traditional tajines (Moroccan stews), kabbabs, gyros, pasta, paella (seafood, vegetables, chicken & saffron rice), desserts and more. Wine is imported from Morocco and fresh seafood is flown in daily. Everything on the menu is homemade from scratch.
The food was excellent but the terrible service made it impossible to enjoy. It took over 3 hours for 2 people to have an appetizer and entrees on a Tuesday night. Even after asking for the check it took 20 minutes to get it. I will never go back just because of the awful service.
Very nice atmosphere and in this case intimate means VERY small so reservations are a must. Staff was attentive and helpful in guiding us through a very different menu than the kids are used to. The food was fantastic and flavorful. Overall a delightful experience.
The food is excellent! The atmospher is warm and intimate. However I found Saffron a bit pricey. I had an appetizer of orange slices and avocado, an entree of one lamb kabob with rice and veggies, and a glass of iced tea(wonderful!) and paid nearly 40.00 with tip. That's a bit much for me. Probably won't go back.
